    From this thread. Sounds pretty intense. Discuss here.

    BCCOM has received a number of e-mails about some RCMP officers that have been enforcing BC's snow tire law to the limit. The law states that all motor vehicles must be equipped with either snow tires or chains to drive on most of BCs highways from Oct. 1st April 30th. Which is now, being applied to motorcycles without regard to actual weather or road conditions. This effectively bans the use of motorcycles in BC during that period (58% of the year)

    BCCOM would now, like ask its members to please take the time to write the Ministry of Transportation about this on going issue. Below is the Minister of Transpiration and Infrastructures e-mail.

    [email protected] - please also CC BCCOM in your e-mail so that we can keep a record of just how many e-mails are sent regarding this issue.

    Just got off an interview with News 1130 and the toll is up to 4 as someone was just killed in Chilliwack. RIP riders.

    The Canadian Press Published Tuesday, August 13, 2013 8:07AM PDT Last Updated Tuesday, August 13, 2013 8:13AM PDT Three motorcyclists have been killed and two injured in two separate crashes on British Columbia roads in just over 24 hours. A couple from Sexsmith, Alta., died Sunday night in a crash near Dawson Creek, in northeastern B.C. Dawson Creek RCMP say the 57-year-old man and his 48-year-old female passenger veered into the path of an oncoming Ford F-350 pickup truck towing a livestock trailer. A second motorcycle skidded out of control and slid to a stop near the wreckage, but police say the man and woman on that bike are expected to recover from their injuries. And in southeastern B.C., a motorcyclist died early Tuesday morning after losing control of his machine while riding through the City of Nelson. Both deadly crashes remain under investigation and no names have been released.

    I see on the weather Channel that "trace" precipitation is being forecast in the next few days.

    Since we have had 34 days and counting of beautiful weather, the roads are gonna be as slick as goose grease with the first amounts of rainfall.

    If you have to be riding when it is raining or has just rained, be careful.
